And indeed, this is abstract. The first 4 songs are relatively short pieces of seemingly random noise such as static, clanks, scratches and electronic hums. It blends together to form a whole. Then the center piece starts. Clocking in at 28 minutes this is a very long track. This one does all the former damage but in a more easy kind of way. It's all a bit longer and it's in these long pieces that you find the meaning of this. It's hidden beneath it all, that's what that track tries to tell you. After all that sonic mayhem track 6 closes off in a more chilled fashion. (Although the last three minutes of that track has a surprise in store) Anyway, if you like it noisy and random and dark and you've heard previous outings by this group, go get it. It isn't their best album, but not their worst either. Track 5 & 6 are my faves here.
